          Older motel with very minimum accommodations. Instead of small bars of soap they used a dispenser which was empty. If you prefer and extremely firm or hard mattress this is your place. There were no blankets other than the bedspread on the bed.

          Small inn ran by very nice couple. On the outside of town near a small lake. Enjoyed the rural atmosphere. Had supper on picnic table. Room clean. Bed comfortable. Continental breakfast with home grown Asian pears. Would definitely stop again! Thanks
